I made these cupcakes at the beginning of the month for a friend, Mimi, who had a great birthday party. I decided to make these because she said she like light flavors and something just overall light. I thought these would have been perfect.
First I made 2/3 of the recipe. 9 eggs was just way too many. I just made it with 6 eggs - which I thought was still a lot. I used grapefruit instead of orange...well because that's what I had in the house. In addition, I decided to add a bit of citrus alcohol in it since the batter was not cupcake consistency.
After baking it, it had a muffin-like consistency therefore I just decided to add a center of lemon yogurt to it. This way, it is less muffin like, but more moist as well. I also topped it with a lime buttercream. Since I didn't have time to place it into the fridge to set up more, I just kinda scooped it on and topped it with sprinkles.
Everyone loved them which is great. Happy [way] Belated Birthday, Mimi.
The recipe for this month's Cupcake Club is found on page 64 of Martha Stewart's Cupcake book or here.Thanks to Marthe from Culinairy Delights for choosing this.
ps. I apologize to everyone for commenting on their blogs a bit later. I will be in New York this week. If you have any suggestions on what to do or where to eat, please email me! I would love to have a great supply of places to eat.
